Six Heriot-Watt University graduates have been nominated for the 2012 Scottish Fashion Awards.
Natalie Traynor, Joanne McGillivray, David Black, Catriona Clark, Coryn Dickson and Deborah Morgan have all been short-listed for the Graduate of the Year category of the Awards which is now in its seventh year.
The ceremony will be hosted by Alexa Chung and will be held on 11 June at the Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow.
Tessa Hartmann, founder of the Awards in 2006 said in an interview with The Herald: "It's a big step for us to move to this impressive venue that is the Clyde Auditorium, but year on year we receive so many requests from young fashionistas all desperate to attend this global event.
"We are delighted to welcome our incredible judging panel flying in from across Europe, Australia, the US and Dubai all contributing to our aim of placing Scottish fashion talent on the global map. With style icon Alexa Chung as our host, all eyes will for sure be on Scotland's most fashionable red-carpet night of the year in 2012."
Among the 15 categories are nominees for Scottish Designer of the Year, Scottish Retailer of the Year and a Hall of Fame Award.
The nominees will be evaluated by a panel of judges made up of professionals in the fashion industry, including designers and journalists.
The awards are a chance for young and upcoming designers to have their work presented to the attending fashion community, consisting of designers, models, retailers and celebrities, and be recognised by influential people in the industry. At the same time it celebrates the best of what the Scottish fashion industry has to offer in fashion, design and textiles.
